Last month, cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra picked a 14-member Indian squad for the T20 World Cup later this year. MS Dhoni, who has not played at the international level since India’s shocking defeat to New Zealand in 2019 World Cup semi-final, was omitted from Aakash Chopra’s squad. The former cricketer recently revealed that he had to cop much abuse from many MS Dhoni fans for snubbing the veteran from his 14-member list.

The former Indian opening batsman said that even his kids were subjected to much abuse over his take on MS Dhoni and the T20 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Ajit Agarkar also expressed his doubts regarding MS Dhoni’s participating in the T20 World Cup. The former Indian pacer said that the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has not played for almost a year, which will make an impactful return all the more difficult for the cricketer. However, Agarkar also said that whether MS Dhoni wants to retire or not, is entirely his own decision.
